Creator: Paul W.S. Anderson

Paul W.S. Anderson is an English director and producer. He has largely stayed in the realm of being a Journeyman Director, basically someone called in to make a movie under the direction of the suits. While that might earn some derision as someone who "makes someone elses' movie," he has taken those movies that could easily become merely a paycheck and turned them into something rather watchable and surprisingly entertaining.

He has carved out a niche in the business of being hard-working and staying within budget. His first major breakthrough was directing the first Mortal Kombat movie, which managed to get some major critics supporting it, appeal to a mainstream audience and make it's money back. Today the movie is regarded as a bit of a Cult Classic. He has since been involved with several other video-game inspired movies, all with a similar degree of respect. In other words, he is "high quality's" answer to Uwe Boll.

He's married to Milla Jovovich.

Not to be confused with Paul Thomas Anderson, although both have gone by merely Paul Anderson before, or with science fiction author Poul Anderson.
